Women in Tech

It’s no secret that women and minorities are seriously underrepresented in tech and science. Here are two crowdfunding projects that want to fix that problem, and deserve your support:

App Camp For Girls aims to teach girls how to design and build iPhone apps. The team, led by Jean MacDonald, is raising money to fund sessions in Portland (for now), and in other cities in the future.

Mosa Mack: Science Detective are short animated science mysteries aimed at girls and students of color. The company is raising money to produce the first two episodes.
